Behind the frequent refreshing leader-board was a professional scoring management team from the European Tour.

"The radio on the course is vital for us to get the first-hand information from the tees." Paul White said, the Scoring Services Manager of European Tour. "Radiowise this week, it’s been very good quality supplied by Hytera…the reception has been very clear around the whole golf course, which can make our job easier. Without the clarity, we would be struggling to hear the correct information. " Paul added.

 

During the whole game period, Hytera DMR portable terminal PD688 with brilliant metal frame design can be seen everywhere around the course on the scorers, referees, marshals, IMG staff and PGA officials. "Among all our mindshare, the critical communication is one of the very important areas to guarantee successful operation.
